San Jose, Calif.----A strong offensive second half boosted the Spartans over Harvard, 8-5, Wednesday afternoon in a non-conference match.
"Offensively I don't think we particularly played well in the first half," said head coach Lou Tully. "I thought we played better toward the end. In the second half our offense started to function better."
With the win, No. 9 San Jose State (15-8, 1-2 MPSF) stretched its season-high win streak to eight matches.
The Spartans scored five of their eight goals in the second half. Adriana Vogt, named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) women's water polo Player of the Week for matches ending March 13, scored two of her three goals in the fourth quarter.
"I'm proud I could contribute," Vogt said about her recent MPSF Player of the Week accomplishment. "It was nice we got the four wins this past weekend, and contributing to that was the nice part about that."
Vogt now has 57 goals this season and 216 goals in three-plus seasons, making her San Jose State's career scoring leader.
Allie Stewart also scored three goals, followed with a pair from Timi Molnar.
Meagan Minson was credited with 10 saves.
San Jose State returns to conference action on Saturday, March 26, when they face No. 7 Arizona State in Tempe, Arizona at 12:00 p.m.
